Hey, friends! We’re playing High and Low Festival on September 9th in beautiful San Bernadino, California. Looking forward to sharing the bill with Tegan and Sara, Best Coast, Cloud Nothings, Brand New, and a bunch of other great bands!

We’re very excited to announce a very special show next month in Seattle: an acoustic evening with our friends The Decemberists​ and Sera Cahoone​. All proceeds from this event will be going directly to the ACLU Nationwide​ & Planned Parenthood​ organizations. Tickets are on sale this Friday, May 12th, at 10am PT here.

“We as Death Cab For Cutie are appalled by the divisive, xenophobic and misogynistic agenda the Trump Administration is attempting to implement in our country. We are proud to be joining our friends The Decemberists and Sera Cahoone in support of both the ACLU and Planned Parenthood at this pivotal time in our nation’s history.” – Benjamin Gibbard​

“There are enough stories from this last week alone — the Trump administration’s attempts to curtail first amendment protections and the GOP’s passage of the heartless AHCA — to remind us that organizations like Planned Parenthood and the ACLU need our support now more than ever. We Decemberists are proud to do our bit to help those orgs stay funded and active in their communities, both local and nationwide. RESIST!” – Colin Meloy​ of The Decemberists

Just announced: A benefit show for Standing Rock & Water Protector Legal Collective. All proceeds will go to the Water Protector Legal Collective. Please visit for more information. Ben will be performing solo and the evening will also feature a reading by author Sherman Alexie and performance by singer/songwriter Naomi Wachira.

I arranged this benefit because I was appalled by Donald Trump’s executive order to reinstate construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline. I believe water is more precious than oil and thoroughly support the right of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to defend both their land and sovereign treaty rights. All proceeds from this show will go to the Water Protector Legal Collective who continue to provide legal support for Native activists and their allies throughout this ongoing fight for justice.

Tickets on sale tomorrow at 10am PT here.
